little stella

Stella McCartney has designed a kids line under her own label. As usual, the clothes are eco friendly and beautifully designed. The only question I have is...why doesn't it come in my size!?

Images will be available here November 3rd.

very vera

This book about Vera Neumann, the brains behind those poppy vintage scarves, is definitely on my wish list. It's full of her sketches, photographs and inspiration. Available at Anthropologie.

How cute are these undies? I love the Air Mail Envelope packaging! Designer Daphne Javitch created these when she couldn't find a low-slung pair that wasn't too sexy or too granny.
The result, adorable! Available at Opening Ceremony.

Off to Miami for some Mojitos and sunshine (hopefully). We're staying at The National - an old Art Deco style hotel with an amazing pool. Will fill you in on all the details when I return!

tres chic

WOW! These images from Zuhair Murad's F/W 10-11 look book are incredible. I love the champagne color and of course, Paris in all it's glory. Via Sarah Klassen.

idlewild books

Wanted to show you all my favorite little book shop in New York City.

It's mainly a travel book shop, but they also have great novels from well known (and not so well known) authors.

Also, they offer 10 week language courses to help prep you for your next big trip! Next time you're on 19th street, pop in.

shaken not stirred

I love the idea of having a Martini Bar at your party, for people to fix their own (I find people are so picky about martinis). Would be a fun idea for a Mad Men party - the season finale is next Sunday!! Via Sunday Suppers.
